| LP Corporate :: 11/19/2014
Last week Jim Berlin, CEO and owner of Logistics Plus
Inc., and Yuriy Ostapyak, director of global operations, both attended the EY
Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs, CA where the annual EY
Entrepreneur of the Year™ awards were presented. Jim and Yuriy
both report that the conference was entertaining and inspirational and they
brought back a lot of ideas learned and shared with fellow entrepreneurs at the
The conference included many thoughtful and insightful
presentations from well-known celebrities such as Ron Howard, Seth, Myers,
Emmitt Smith, Jimmy Johnson, and David Robinson, as well as
accomplished entrepreneurs such as Tony Hsieh (CEO for Zappos) and
Patricia Woertz (CEO for Archer Daniels Midland Company).
As a very entrepreneurial company in its own right,
Logistics Plus would like to congratulate Mr. David Hung, CEO and founder of
Medivation, one of biotech's greatest success stories, for taking home the
"2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year" award. We'd also like to
congratulate the many regional winners and finalists for their extraordinary achievements.

in 2004 for the Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia Region. Jim is also a
lifetime member of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame, a truly
well-earned distinction (see image below, which can be found on the www.ey.com website).
